Abdominal pain..slightly on the left side

by Jessica

I am a 33 y/o female that has started having abd pains about two inches above my belly button and about an inch to the left. I have been getting sharp stabbing pains at random times and also if i take a deep breath or stretch. Some recent history: In April 2011 I had a DNC and diag. laperoscopy due to painful periods. In March 2012 I found out I was pregnant and in May I had a miscarriage. I had a suction DNC at that time. Since then my periods have not been regular. For the first 3 months I spotted off and on and bleed for about 10 days every two weeks. Then on the 4th month I was 5 days late and bled for 8 days. Now I am 10 days late and counting (not pregnant). Today I felt a small lump about two inches above where the pain is. I am not sure if this could be OB related or due to the intestines. Please provide feedback.Thank you.

Hi Jessica,

It sounds like you've gone through a lot recently! We are ever so sorry to learn about your ordeals.

Regarding the pain and swelling you've described above your umbilicus and slightly to the left, it will be difficult to put a name on what it might be without first seeing it.

As a rough guess, it is important to exclude an epigastric hernia or perhaps an endometrotic nodule. Please see your doctor and I am sure they will be able to tell you what's going on, or request some tests to ascertain this.
